A commercial airplane flew over the spot where a North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile would strike 10 minutes later.
ABC News says that an Air France flight was flying over the Sea of Japan traveling from Tokyo to Paris.
And although the plane was potentially in danger, Air France says the missile test zones "...don't interfere in any way with Air France's flight paths."
The airline also said that it "...constantly analyzes potentially dangerous flyover zones and adapts its flight plans accordingly."
But the Pentagon didn't view the incident so nonchalantly saying that the area is used by "commercial flights and fishing vessels".
The Pentagon also expressed concern that the test was "completely uncoordinated" without any press release that the test would be conducted.
It was the second ICBM test that North Korea conducted within a month.
The United States just launched its fourth ICBM on Wednesday from California.
The Air Force says the launch demonstrates that the U.S. nuclear enterprise is safe, secure and effective and will defend against attacks on the United States and its allies.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson also trying to ease escalating tensions stating the U.S is not North Korea's enemy and that we are not seeking a regime change.
